(EnergyIndustry.Net, November 26, 2021 ) The carbon fiber market size is estimated to be USD 3.7billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 8.9 billion by 2031, at a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period. The demand for clean fuels such as CNG and hydrogen is increasing globally, resulting in increase in demand for carbon fibers in CNG and hydrogen tanks manufacturing. Also, the growth in number of on-shore and off-shore wind capacity installations is driving the growth of carbon fibers in wind energyindustry.
Companies operating in the carbon fiber market have strengthened their position by adopting expansions and new product/technology launches from 2015-2020. Expansions, joint ventures, acquisitions, and new product launches were among the key growth strategies adopted by the market players between January 2015 and November 2020. Toray Industries, Inc. (Japan), Teijin Ltd. (Japan), Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings (Japan), Hexcel Corporation (US), SGL (Germany), Solvay (Belgium), and Formosa (Taiwan), and Hyosung Corporation (South Korea) are some of the key players in the carbon fiber market.
In April 2021, Hyosung Advanced Materials signed a contract with Hanhwa Solutions. The company announced that it signed a long-term contract to supply reinforced carbon fiber to be used for strengthening fuel tanks in hydrogen vehicles for six years beginning 2021. The total supply is worth about 160 billion won. This agreement will boost the sales of carbon fiber.
In November 2020, SGL Carbon and Koller Kunststofftechnik partnered to manufacture novel carbon fiber profiles for use in windshields for a future high-volume model of BMW Group. This helped SGL Carbon to improve their application in automobile applications and increase the carbon fiber demand.
